Miles Sanders, the second-round rookie, has looked the part when given the chance. The Eagles are slowly integrating Sanders into the offense after he missed all of the offseason program workouts with a hamstring injury.
On Tuesday, Sanders displayed versatility in team drills. With tackling permitted in practice, Sanders made a few impressive runs through contact. During 11-on-11 drills, the running back scored a short-yardage touchdown through a wall of bodies.
We're seeing all kinds of news about the Eagles backs, all of which is positive. Early reports said Sanders would eventually eat away carries from Howard. More recent reports have Howard looking great as well, while dominating first-team reps. One thing Sanders needed to work on was receiving, according to beat writers, but according to the story, Sanders looked natural catching the ball. This is likely shaping up to be a committee backfield, at least early on.
PHI RB Corey Clement - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 14 at Dallas Cowboys
The Eagles head to Dallas for a pivotal division match-up. Philadelphia has an implied team total of just 20.25 points, in the bottom third for Week 14 against a strong Cowboys defense. Dallas ranks top five in aFPA to RBs. With 20 and 22 rushes in his last two games, Josh Adams is the only viable fantasy starter in the Eagles backfield. His lack of passing game production though pushes him down to FLEX territory, however. Corey Clement and Darren Sproles combined for 12 touches last week, rendering neither of them as starting options in Week 14.
